Welcome to the Eurythmy Therapy Association Ltd. We are the professional Association for Eurythmy Therapists working in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The Association is a voluntary body furthering and supporting the work of Eurythmy Therapy and Eurythmy therapists throughout the British Isles.
Eurythmy is a movement art, which was brought into being by the Austrian scientist and philosopher Dr Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925) in the second decade of the 20th Century. First developed as a performance art, it’s application in the realm of education soon followed. Some years later in 1921 following interest from a number of medical professionals, Dr Steiner indicated that through the metamorphosis of the gestures and movements of artistic eurythmy a therapeutic application was possible. Over the last 100 years, Eurythmy Therapy has further evolved and developed into a comprehensive movement therapy aiming to restore a state of health and wellbeing to all aspects of our being. From its early home in Central Europe Eurythmy Therapy is now available in countries throughout the world. Further background information can be found here.
